Default New Years Eve on Dawn Princess

Hi:

We've been on Carnival and RCL for New Years, but not Princess. Has anyone done a NY Eve cruise on Princess and how did you like it?

Any comments will be appreciated.

Thanks....Buddy

PS Actually, I've been posting for four years but I don't know how to get the date changed......

I always love New Years Eve on a cruise, and we've done several.

The one thing that surprised me on Princess for New Years eve is they didn't even offer a free glass of champagne to toast the New Year.

Other than that they had events going on all over the ship, and we had a good time!

Kuki, We noticed the lack of free glasses of champagne as well on our last Princess New Year's cruise.

Back in the "old days" champagne would flow like water on Princess cruises for New Year's.

It may be that there was a slight problem with the younger folks on the ship. People would take a glass of FREE champange and leave it about half full (even bottles) and it was common for the younger cruisers to be hanging around and not "not let it go to waste".

One New Year's Eve there was a major problem in the teen center. Many of us had very "hung over" teens the next day including our daughter!
The HAPPY side of this is she never had a problem in college at frat parties, etc. with becoming overserved because she "never wanted to feel that bad again"!
